Better Than Crack Brownies

It was my bosses birthday the other day. What do you get your boss for his birthday…seriously? So I decided I couldn’t’ go wrong with a sweet treat. 

I had book marked this recipe off of How Sweet It Is a long time ago. I knew right away that they were going to be GOOD, all you have to do is look at the ingredient list. Anything with peanut butter cups in it is OK by me!
They are so good! And really easy!

Here is what you need, oops forgot to take a pic! 

1 batch of brownies (boxed or your favourite recipe)
½ cup salted peanuts
1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter
½ tbsp. butter
1 ½ cups rice krispies cereal

Mix the brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Make sure they are still pretty gooey at this point. Sprinkle on the peanuts and chopped peanut butter cups and bake for another 4-6 minutes.
In the meantime, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter at medium heat in the microwave, stirring often, until smooth. Stir in the rice cereal.
Remove the brownies from the oven and pour the chocolate mixture on top in an even layer.
Stash in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

They are sweet and a little salty. Chewy and crispy, these brownies have it all!
I suggest you make them when you are having a lot of people over so you can give some away. You really don’t want to have to eat this whole batch yourself, and you will!!

Pure evil, in a good way! Thanks Jessica  for yet another amazingly decadent dessert!

  1. This recipe is seriously tempting me! All of that goodness crammed into one pan? Guaranteed I'd be eating way too much of it. Definitely a recipe for when we have guests!
